US Tracking Suspicious N. Korean Ship

October 19th, 2006 . by Gerry-Bevers

I have just heard on South Korean news that the US is tracking a suspcious North Korean cargo ship. There were few other details, but the reporter speculated that this may lead to the first boarding and search of a North Korean ship since the new UN sanctions were adopted. I have not seen any written reports, but the Korean news report said that it was being reported on CBS News in the US.

    Read something on CNN this morning saying a suspicious ship leaving North Korea is being watched by US officials because they suspect it is not obeying the recent sanctions prohibiting the shipment of materials used for making nuclear weapons. Am looking for the link right now…

    Hmmm….can’t find the link but it was the leading story on the CNN international news page this morning…they have since taken it down.

    There is one thing for certain. The Koreans, north and south cannot be trusted. The only safe thing to do is to remove KJI by force, even it it means wholesale killing of the population of Korea. We just can have nukes blowing up Tokyo and New York because of the Koreans. Hopefully the US will manufacture a reason to start the war.

    That is more than a little radical, GarlicBreath. I don’t think you really mean it.

    Anyone who has Korean friends knows how charming they can be, and all my Korean friends are very trustworthy. I would not want to see any Koreans killed or Korean society destroyed. Korea has the potential to be a really great country.

    The main problem in Korea is the “hate education.” That is something that has to stop.

    That’s perfect Garlic breath. Now I’ll figure out a way to kill you and get away with it.

    Retard.

    This here is a pretty hostile environment it seems.
    Making similar arguments, I don’t see KidfromOhio being any better than GarlicBreath.

    Anyway, where does GarlicBreath’s allegiance lie?
    Certainly not the Japanese.

    It’s true that a lot of Japanese nowadays are vary wary of the Koreans,
    but it’s also true that they like peaceful resolution if it is at all possible.
    I mean, Japan is faced with a lunatic with a nuke next door and the politicains are arguing whether or not this constituted “emergencies around/near Japan” lol. They’re hopeless!

    Japan has so much of a distance to cover before it can become a
    normal nation. Sigh.

    Well said.

    Korea has the potential to be a really great country.

    But she is being blocked from becoming so because of Imperial Japan. Apologize and compensate!

    Gerry, we need to be realistic. KJI needs to be removed. However, if it is done by a coup, he may be relaced by somebody worse. Japan and the USA are the propaganda enemy of both the south koreans and north koreans.

    We must own up to the fact that he cannot be controlled and will do what he threatends to do. Whit that in mind, a war to remove him is the only solution.

    Gerry Beavers-

    I meant the Norht and South Korean govt cannot be trusted. I was not talking about the people. Naturally every nation has good and bad people.

    If Japan rightfully went to war with the north. I have no doubt that South Korea would step in. That is why I say that their would be massive korean death. I am willing to accept that loss.

    If the US has a right to use force, such as bombing serbia, or the first and second arab war, why shouldn’t japan have that same right.

    Japan needs to open her eyes to the Korean threat.

    GarlicBreath,

    I do not think Japan needs to fear an attack from either North or South Korea, but like any country in the world, Japan needs to fear terrorists getting hold of nuclear weapons.

    Just because Koreans seem to be paranoid about a Japanese attack does not mean the Japanese have to be paranoid, too.

    Gerry,

    I wouldn’t be so sure about that, after all, we do have our territory occupied by South Korea. Remember that when Japan tried to survey the waters around Takeshima, SK pledged to deploy militaristic measures. And remember that Japan does not to the same to SK.

    And about terrorists, NK may employ her unconventional military force (=terrorists) to terrorize Japan. You do know that NK infiltrators are hard to detect in Japan, and Japan does have many NK collaborators in her borders.

    As long as Koreans continue their ethnocentric and Japan-hate policies, and as long as these policies seem appeasing to both NK and SK, wouldn’t be so sure as you. Of course, being paranoid is not the solution, but Japan does need to recognize that Japan has anti-Japanese states in her neighbor, and it is appeasing to their people that Japan suffers.

    Hi Gerry.

    I never said that the south would attack Japan. I believe that the north will. If you do not, that is your opinion. I respect you and your opinion, but I believe that when push comes to shove the north will nuke japan.

    This is quite easy to understand. The north cannot attack their comrads in china and s korea, and the usa is too far. It is only logical that they attack japan.

    Japan must be ready and if possible, prevent a japanese genocide.
